Community Investment Program

In 2022, the City of Port Alberni allocated a portion of its provincial gambling revenue from hosting RimRock Casino to its Community Investment Program, which provided assistance to 41 non-profit community organizations, events and programs that improve the quality of life for residents.


One of the events that received support was the annual Alberni District Fall Fair, which celebrated its belated 75th anniversary in 2022, after being delayed as a result of the pandemic. Families from all over the Alberni Valley flocked to the event to enjoy the midway, livestock, and entertainment.

The Community Investment Program also helped support Special Olympics BC, cold weather supports and pop-up warming centres for unhoused individuals, as well as Pride celebrations.
